During the evening of Friday July 18, 2008, the Napa Police Department will be conducting DUI Saturation Patrols. The patrols will take place in an area of the City of Napa where a high number of collisions caused by driving under the influence have occured, and in areas where a high number of DUI arrests have been made.

The Napa Police Department is working to cut down on collisions involving the driver who has been drinking.  The Police Department advises the person who has been drinking to find alternatives to driving - take a cab, take the bus, walk, call a friend, or use a designated driver.

The funding for the DUI Saturation Patrols comes from a grant to the Napa Police Department from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
